Five States Expected to Legalize Marijuana in 2013

With Colorado already selling retail cannabis and Washington right behind, it is only a matter of time before other states follow suite. But what states will be taking the next step?

A two part article by Marijuana Business Daily lists out the probable states and evaluate the most likely route. Here are the states that are expected to shift to legal retail sales of marijuana next year:

Rhode Island: Unlike Colorado and Washington, Rhode Island would proceed with legalization after a legislative vote in the General Assembly, not a general election.

Alaska: Alaska looks to be heading for a general election vote on legalizing marijuana, which would happen in August of 2014.

Oregon: New Approach Oregon will push lawmakers to refer their legalization measure to the November 2014 ballot. If that route fails, the group will go on the hunt for signatures: it needs 87,213 signed petitions in order for the measure to appear on the ballot.

California: We added California to our list, even though many advocates believe that 2014 is simply too early to push forward with a legalization effort. There’s a chance the momentum created by legalization in Colorado and Washington State will spill over into California.
